I'd like to backup photos taken on my dSLR camera on SD cards. Can I use a USB adapter to copy an SD card into the iPod's local memory, then attach a different SD card and copy the files to that?

Probably not, as the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit is officially not supported on iPhone or iPod touch; and that would just give you the physical connection of your SD card to the iPod touch.

To have direct access to the file-system of your SD-card you need a jailbreak. There is a slight chance you may get the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit working on a jailbroken iPod touch:

Check out iConnectionKit and this YouTube video.

I bought a "hitch" a while back & this lets you transfer data from one usb device to another without anything else needed. I have used usb card readers plugged into one end & various other usb devices plugged into the other & it has always worked. Hope this helps.
